This is going to be awesome!
(Someone take a bunch of photos and post them for me please. I want to see how this incredible event I usually try to come to, but can't this time, turns out.)
The tank light is always the best. The whole point of the get together is all the flashlights and especially the Lights IgNITEor brings like the Death Ray. I was hoping to add a small addition to this collection but didn't make the deadline. (One of these days my humble little 72 inch 4kwatt light will make it up to the show),
The best light in town is the Death Ray!
The Death Ray is the king of all the searchlights, and if you make it to the show, you'll have a chance to see it and talk with the owner and operator. This individual assisted me into the HMI world, so I could try and make a light that might hit a tree a hundred feet away.
A room full of eager prize seekers, await some amazing light devices as a possible prize...if not they'll buy some incredible lights too.

I hope you all have an excellent get together. I'm bummed to not be able to go. Some last minute issues and difficult assembling and testing the 72 inch Lord of Lights, (World's Biggest Searchlight), makes it impractical to drive up from Portland this time. (Several jobs have dried up and income is way too limited to do anything for a while.). I'm totally bummed, but a couple drunk lushes that moved in down the street from me, have made it entirely impossible to do any light work for a while. I want to try and keep the peace around my block for a while.
Go to the show and take pictures..! I wanted to go and now I'm bummed...I can't. No gas, no money, no lights. LOL.. Have Fun!
See you all next time.
